This document describes a protocol for a Device to provide
location-related measurement data to a Location Information Server (LIS)
within a request for location information.  Location-related
measurement information provides observations concerning properties
related to the position of a Device; this information could be data
about network attachment or about the physical environment.  A LIS is
able to use the location-related measurement data to improve the
accuracy of the location estimate it provides to the Device.  A basic
set of location-related measurements are defined, including common
modes of network attachment as well as assisted Global Navigation
Satellite System (GNSS) parameters.

This document is a product of the Geographic Location/Privacy Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
